Invisalign Q & A

What’s Invisalign?

Invisalign straightens your teeth and improves your smile with transparent, removable aligners made of durable, flexible, FDA-approved thermoplastic. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and convenient than the metal brackets of traditional braces. With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

How does Invisalign work?

Before receiving your custom-made aligners, Dr. Muaina takes impressions of your teeth to ensure they fit securely. He also creates your treatment plan detailing the planned movement of your teeth and refers to it throughout the treatment to track your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

When you come to Southern Hills Dental to receive your initial set of aligners, Dr. Muaina provides instructions on how to wear and care for them. Expect to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day and remove them when you eat and brush your teeth.

Over time, the aligners shift your teeth in the precise manner planned by Dr. Muaina by applying controlled, gentle pressure.

To achieve the smile you desire, you receive a new, slightly different set of aligners every few weeks that when you come to Southern Hills Dental for your routine checkups.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is the preferred method to straighten teeth because they’re almost invisible while you wear them. With traditional metal braces, taking pictures or attending social functions can be less than ideal with a mouth full of metal. When you choose Invisalign, you can always smile with confidence.

Another perk is you can occasionally remove your aligners for a moment of reprieve, especially when you eat and brush your teeth.

How do I take care of my Invisalign aligners?

To ensure your aligners last and don’t deteriorate, Dr. Muaina recommends brushing them with fluoride toothpaste and rinsing them in warm water.

An Invisalign cleaning system is also available and probably the best way to properly care for your aligners. When you have questions about your aligners, Dr. Muaina is always happy to chat.
